Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Is A ‘Site Crashing Success’!!
July 15 UPDATE!! – Well here it is, the 15th and I still haven’t seen Dr. Horrible yet! Why?? Well your either reading this sometime in the future (Who wins the election??) or you don’t know about Dr. Horrible yet. Well it got slash/dotted!! So many people tried to watch the first episode, it crashed their server. Not only their server, but Felicia Day’s site, whedonesque, etc…. It’s on iTunes. The US cost is $1.99 per episode, $3.99 for all three. That’s here. Here’s a great story from the LA Times about Dr. Horrible’s site crashing success! Now back to my original post and Dr. Horrible links.
July 15 UPDATE – The sequel – I finally saw it. Act I anyway. It’s Wonderful! I can’t wait for the next two parts. All I can say is … The World needs more Super-Villain Musicals … and curtains, lacy, gently wafting curtains… what? Neil Patrick Harris needs to be nominated for an Emmy or a Grammy or Webby or something. Webrammy? Felicia Day’s voice is pleasant and melodious. Nathan Filian plays the cloddish, pretty-boy Super-Hero perfectly. As of 11:15 PM (E) the guys at Dr. Horrible tweeted this. Good luck and enjoy.

Remember how clever and well written his classic “Once More, With Feeling” episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was?
Stars: Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) , Nathan Fillian (Desperate Housewives and Firefly) and Felicia Day (one of the “potential” slayers in Buffy‘s final season and the creator/writer/star of the popular Internet series, The Guild)
The first review of Dr. Horrible is in from TV Guide’s Matt Roush. It’s very glowing and raving, especially of Neil Patrick Harris’s performance. I’ll post a link to it, but beware, thar be spoilers! If you read the first 6 paragraphs you’ll be fine (that’s how much I’ve read). LINK
